Bachelor Winner Nikki Ferrell Calls Bachelorette Finale 'Trash'

Nikki Ferrell was quite pleased with last season's Bachelor finale. But last night's Bachelorette finale was a whole different story.

Ferrell, who was chosen by Juan Pablo Galavis at the end of The Bachelor's 18th season, blasted ABC producers Tuesday night on Twitter while watching the culmination of The Bachelorette – seemingly in reference, fans say, to Nick Viall's revelation that he'd slept with Andi Dorfman – and suggesting that producers pushed him to admit it.

There are some downsides to being on The Bachelor. For one thing, people will always speculate about the direction of your relationships long after the cameras are off.

The latest Bachelor to face breakup rumors is Juan Pablo Galavis, who chose Nikki Ferrell in the finale of season 18 – but declined to propose to her. The rumors began after Galavis was photographed talking with another woman in Atlantic City. Ferrell was nowhere to be seen. Soon, multiple media outlets speculated that they had broken up.

Is this Juan Pablo Galavis's way of saying "I love you"?

The polarizing Bachelor star released a YouTube video on Tuesday honoring his relationship with winner Nikki Ferrell and titled "Adventures in Loving You."

Galavis picked – but did not propose to – Ferrell on the finale, and though the two were still a couple during the After the Final Rose special, the former soccer pro wouldn't say whether he loves her.

Juan Pablo: Why I Didn't Propose to Nikki

The Bachelor's Juan Pablo Galavis: I Want to Know a Lot More About Nikki Ferrell

The setting (St. Lucia) was paradise. The ring (3.5 carats!) was picture perfect. But to the shock and surprise of Bachelor viewers, Juan Pablo Galavis did not propose to his final rose recipient, Nikki Ferrell, on the show's 18th season finale.

The couple gave an exclusive interview and photo shoot to PEOPLE, then swiftly declined to do any other press. (Chris Harrison likely understands why.) In their sole sitdown, Galavis remained laid-back about the show's outcome.

"You go on [The Bachelor] thinking if there is the connection, you propose," Galavis, 32, tells PEOPLE. "But I don't feel there's a need to propose to somebody if I don't feel 100 percent. I didn't know Nikki. I want to know more, a lot more."

For her part, Ferrell, 27, is happy to just be Galavis's girlfriend – for now.

"Had he gotten down on one knee, I absolutely would have said yes. But having a ring on my finger wouldn't stop us from breaking up," she says in an interview with PEOPLE. "What's going to keep us together is having a real relationship. I'd rather have him propose when he feels it's right."

The Bachelor: Who Was Most Surprised by Juan Pablo's Refusal to Propose? Jeweler Neil Lane!

While Monday's Bachelor finale may not have ended in an engagement, that didn't stop Juan Pablo Galavis from picking out a ring for Nikki Ferrell.

So where is the 3.5-carat sparkler – a diamond and platinum ring set with a central cushion-cut diamond, and encrusted with more than 240 smaller round diamonds – now that JP didn't get down on one knee?

According to a show source: "The ring is now with producers and is not in Juan Pablo's possession. If a proposal doesn't occur on the show, the show holds on to the ring. If Juan Pablo decides to propose in the near future, the ring would be his for the asking. But much further down the line? It's unclear whether or not he'd still have access to it."
